Great little cafe

Great little cafe! Very fresh Greek salad, one of the best we had. The fried cheese was also awesome. Excellent views. Very good lunch.

I ordered the seafood platter and they had the nerve to serve us canned tuna in our platter. They had 3 waiters. One of them was drinking beer while serving us. The other one was drinking coffee and the last guy, the head waiter, was smoking in the counter. smoking inside the restaurant!!

We stumbled upon Antica Cafe as we were walking in Monastiraki. We both ordered the grilled chicken kebob with rice. The food was great. The portions were large and reasonably priced. I'd recommend going here for a nice casual dinner as it has great views of the Acropolis.

The waiter was very welcoming when we were on the street but as soon as we sat down he was very rude. We asked What was on their banana splits and he said to look in the menu and walked away. Nothing was shown in the menu.. Lunch food we had was just Ok.

Great place to have something to eat after a long day's sightseeing. Good variety of food on the menu, everything from traditional Greek to pizza and the most delicious chicken sandwich I have ever had. Reasonably priced too, especially given the views. We had a very warm welcome from Nikos, with whom we talked philosophy, politics and holidays. We went... More

We ate here for supper recently and were pleasantly surprised. We had Gemista Peppers and Tomato and lamb and some appetizers. We picked it because the staff was clearly attentive and there were more Greeks eating there. The food was all good and tasty. The waiters were friendly and refilled the water and wine jugs. The food came in a... More

Hard to go wrong here; the fresh fish we had in mid-June (2015) was not only delicious, it was also remarkably reasonably priced--about 16 euros (including several sides). The combined meat platter (various kinds of meat) was also excellent. Almost every table outside has a partial view of the Acropolis, as well as of some rather large columned ancient building...
